No5’s planning group enters into sponsorship deal to support TCPA’s Garden City principles

No5 Chambers’ planning group has entered into a sponsorship agreement with the Town and Country Planning Association (TCPA) with the objective of supporting the association’s Garden City principles.

The Garden City initiative is concerned with providing planned settlements for the 21st century, which enhance the natural environment providing a foundation for high-quality, inclusive places to live for sustainable lifestyles by working with developers, designers, local authorities and community groups.

The sponsorship package supported the recent TCPA one-day conference ‘Garden City principles — from theory to practice’, which took place at St Martins in the Fields, Trafalgar Square, London.

The planning group is also supporting the TCPA publication Garden Cities Today: A Practical Guide to Standards, which will be launched in parliament in June 2014.
